Aska

OPENED1251 DAYS AGO

A new restaurant in Williamsburg, run by Michelin starred chef and owner, Fredrik Berselius, has just opened – Aska. Located inside an old 1860’s warehouse building, under the Williamsburg bridge at South 5th street, Aska takes inspiration from Berselius’ Swedish roots and New York City experience offering a 12-15 course daily changing tasting menu as well as amore casual bar and garden menu.

Aska – Swedish for “ashes” – is the second restaurant for Berselius after he closed his critically acclaimed restaurant, that went by the same name, two years ago. The new spot evokes a strong connection to nature and focuses on ingredients mainly from the Northeast with a few special items like Finnish caviar thrown in. Whilst the tasting menu changes daily, dishes have included the likes of dry-aged beef with cured beef fat and salted gooseberries, hay-smoked lamb with sun-chokes, a squid tart, and fresh peas with razor clams and elderflower. Tasting menus are $215 per person (gratuity included) with an optional $115 beverage pairing.

There is also an outdoor garden and downstairs bar and lounge where guests can order a la carte dishes including oysters, grilled carrots with fresh cheese, smoked hake wrapped in butter lettuce, onions with cod roe, and fancy bread & butter.

Berselius earned a Michelin star for his first version of Aska inside Kinfolk Studios. His new version on south 5th street is larger in space, menu and price tag so it will be interesting to see how the new version is received.

Aska is open for dinner Tuesday through Saturday and requires reservations for the tasting menu service whilst the cellar bar and garden offer a more casual drop-in service.
